PhotoHunter: Spiral

I have a number of tattoos.

Two are spirals.

The first is a commemoration of surviving “a very bad year”. It is an ancient sign which is the symbol of the sun in many cultures but also represents the Labyrinth — a journey inwards and an journey outwards. While it is a single line, it incorporates both the inward and outward journey… into the darkness and out to the light.

The second was to commemorate the second anniversary of “the very bad year”.

It is over my breastbone and represents a number of things. It is my Sacred Heart… It is (metaphorically) wearing my heart on my sleeve… It is a tendril unfurling… It is a knot untied… It is a release…
